It has been a positive one so far.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Melbourne

I have been working at Juniper Networks

ProsSome smart people and good information sharing online tools are decent to work with. The culture is a competitive one.

ConsThere has been a lot of changes in the staffing in the last 2 years, and the culture has changed quite a bit.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe need to have more education programs for partners is essential. More online tools and resources should be made available to partners to empower them with ability to create sales and opportunities. The product feature velocity needs to be improved in areas where there is plenty of catchup needed.

Juniper is good comapny to work for

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Melbourne

I have been working at Juniper Networks

ProsGood people, good management, its'a a company that 's big enough to engage the large opportunities and small enough to care about the outcome.

ConsProduct range is still somewhat limited. Market penetration is getting better but needs work. Marketing doens't exist.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some money on marketing - for every dollar you put in you'll get back three,... That's how CISCO does it.

I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWork life balance, Environment used to be very healthy, nice people

Conslately with so many Job cuts, employees are not able to concentrate on work at all...Company has bowed to investors and firing people despite amazing quarterly results

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease try to save the company...Investors will move away in 2 years...Company will not be able to survive without good employees which are being thrown out..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

6 years of bliss - 4 years of constant churn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Juniper Networks part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people, benefits, company values, room for advancement in certain area's

Consno room for advancement in my partuclar area, senior management

Advice to Senior Managementwhen you "cleaned house" on the employees, you forgot to clean up the upper management. When a company evangelizes their core values like trust and respect, they need to live it and breathe it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
